What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
PRP comes from your own blood and contains high concentrations of platelets and growth factors that help your tissue heal and grow new cells. PRP is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm into a sterile tube. The tube is centrifuged to separate your plasma, the portion of the blood that we use for the treatment, from your red and white blood cells, which settle to the bottom of the tube.
Historically, PRP has been primarily used in orthopedic medicine, dentistry and reconstructive surgery to help speed recovery. Now it’s used in aesthetic medicine to help damaged, aging skin grow new collagen and elastin for beautiful, youthful results.
Am I A Good Candidate For Microneedling?
Microneedling is a very safe and effective treatment to improve your skin, regardless of skin type. The depth of the microneedle can be adjusted to meet your individual needs and goals. Due to its low-risk profile, microneedling is a good option for people who aren’t good candidates for lasers, such as those prone to hyperpigmentation. Microneedling is also very powerful for treating scars and stretch marks on the face and body.
How Is Microneedling Performed?
First, we apply a strong topical numbing cream to the treatment area for optimal comfort. We then insert a new, sterile cartridge containing 12 microneedles into the MicroPen and set the depth based on your skin’s unique needs. Before, during and after the microneedling procedure we apply your prepared PRP solution to the treatment area to ensure it gets fully absorbed.
